In 1988, the Bicentennial of the discovery of Australia by Cook, there was a significant surge in nationalism and a love of all things “Australiana”. One of my clients of the time was renovating a mansion, Wingrove, in Hunters Hill and requested a recreation for their front door of an early NSW State Coat of Arms, made prior to Federation.

So I’m now in my 60’s [how did that happen?!] and I feel I’ve finally hit my full stride- thought there’s still a stretch ahead! Born and lived all my life in Sydney, and loving it. Graduated from the National Art School (Randwick TAFE and East Sydney campus) in 1974 with a Diploma in Interior Design, worked for 3 years at Taronga Zoo as their Staff Artist, then took an apprenticeship with the stained glass master Stephen Moore. In 1982 I left his studio to take up private practice.

    Theres a lot of work there and the detail is impecable well done x

  • you’re right, there IS a lot of work in this one. the painting and silver staining deosn’t really present much of a problem to my, I enjoy doing it, but acid etching is a bitch. one has to get totally kitted out in a space suit and concentrate fully on the task until it’s done. Highly dangerous technique and one I don’t use very often because of that. In fact it’s comercially banned in Australia now
